Kathmandu - The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has urged the government to resolve the issues of dissatisfaction through dialogue and not to opt for complex option like fast-unto-death, which might put the life in danger. A press release issued today by NHRC’s Secretary Bed Bhattarai drew the government’s attention, urging it to be serious towards the basic human rights issues like education, to take possible initiative to save Dr KC’s life being serious towards the past agreements signed with him time and again and to make public the implementation status of the agreements.

The NHRC said that its attention has been drawn towards health condition of Dr KC, who has been staging fast-unto-death since September 14, putting forth the demand of implementation of past agreements signed with government for reform in medical education.

Similarly, it said that its attention has been drawn towards the memorandum submitted at the NHRC by different organisations like Nepal Medical Association requesting it to take necessary efforts to save Dr KC’s life. In course of monitoring, it is known that the health condition of Dr KC is stable and there is high risk of infection as his potassium, magnesium and glucose level has decreased and immunity power has become weak due to frequent hunger strikes.

Dr KC has now been admitted at TU Teaching Hospital after his health started deteriorating from the ninth day of the strike. Earlier, he was admitted at Trauma Centre, Bir Hospital. Before this, he had started the hunger strike from Jumla last week. He was brought to Nepagunj from there and to Kathmandu.
